Chinese PH-0001 "UMPC" sports unique design

Ctn_ph0001

Although it looks like Windows XP, this oddly shaped and terribly named PH-0001 "UMPC" by Shenzhen CTN Technology actually runs Excel, Word, PowerPoint, MSN, Windows Media Player, and Skype on Windows CE 5.0. How well the 6.6-ounce device can do these things with hardware controls obviously designed for the PocketNester (NES emulator), flash, 3D, and other games it supports is certainly debatable, but a 4-inch touchscreen, SD/MMC card slot, and wi-fi connectivity should help a little.

The PH-0001’s stated dimensions of 5.9" x 2.8" x 0.6" seem a bit off, but that may not be a shocker coming from a company whose primary business seems to be knocking off iPods.

  • I think that is a very poor form factor. It ir a windows CE OS, I think they need to go back to the drawing board and make a touch type keyboard computer not another goofy UMPC
